4 Large potatoes, scrubbed
50 g (2 oz) 4 Tbs Butter
Salt and pepper to taste
175 ml (6 fl oz) 3/4 cup Sour cream
2 Tbs Chopped chives

method

1. Preheat the oven to hot 225°C (Gas Mark 7, 425°F). Arrange the potatoes on a baking sheet and put them into the oven. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours (depending on the size of the potatoes).

2. Remove the potatoes from the oven and gently slit the tops. Squeeze the sides slightly to loosen the flesh. Divide the butter equally among them and season with salt and pepper.
